My name is Mariam El-Sharkh and I have this wonderful opportunity to partner up with UNICEF USA to raise money for the humanitarian crisis in Yemen.
If you guys did not already know, Yemen is currently in the largest humanitarian crisis in the world. Approximately, 24 million individuals require aid due to a series of events that have occurred throughout several years. Not only has there been a war going on for several years, but there is famine, an epidemic of cholera, and the pandemic of the coronavirus. It has been rumored that the coronavirus will delete Yemen from the maps. It is, also, estimated that about one Yemeni child dies every ten minutes due to the collapse of the health care system.
Our brothers and sisters in Yemen are suffering and it is up to us to hold their burdens close to our hearts and make a change! Martin Luther King jr once said, " Life's most persistent and urgent question is: " What are you doing to help others?" In times of vulnerability, we need to stand united no matter what religion, ethnicity, gender, or skin color to alleviate the cries of help!
According to UNICEF, funds will be used to:
provide fuel to operate water pumping stations
maintain crumbling water and sanitation infrastructure
distribute basic family hygiene kits that include soap, to prevent the spread of cholera and COVID-19
My first goal is 5,000 dollars, but if we can go past it that would be awesome! Please, if you are able, donate as much as you can! Thank you so much! If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO SHARE AS WELL
